Rabbi Yehuda Loewe (1512 1607), known as the Maharal of Prague, was one of the greatest sages of the Jewish people. However, his profound Torah insights have been inaccessible to the English-speaking public until now. The Genesis volume of Gur Arye, Maharal's commentary on Rashi, is for the first time available to English readers, complete with source annotations for further in-depth study.
